The latest news on the Bird Flu epidemic and its impact on buying and selling birds
The current impact of the Avian Influenza (Bird Flu) epidemic in the UK is less than experienced in 2021-22. To date this winter there is no housing order in place so that domestic birds are allowed to roam outside. There are still general restrictions in place though, for example in mixing groups of domestic birds. These restrictions are still affecting bird shows.
At Brow Farm Peafowl we have not had any birds contract Bird Flu. We do of course continue to follow strict biosecurity measures and minimise visiting in and around our aviaries.
We are currently able to ship birds through our courier. We’re hopeful that this will not change – this page and the Home page will be updated as necessary.
The DEFRA website is a good source of information and advice.
